Screen Makeover

I had a lovely 'Mothering Sunday' weekend.  Tom flew down from Leeds and Rosie drove over from the New Forest to stay.  Rosie brought me this lovely Ladybird mug

and Tom brought me his dirty washing (only joking!).

Rosie's puppy Bodhi woke us all up at 6 a.m. and I was the one who got up to him and decided it was such a beautiful morning we had a two hour walk along the beach.  He is a little sweetie and always has one ear up and the other down!

I have now done the makeover on the little screen I bought.

This is as I bought it.  I always knew it would be painted with my favourite F & B's French Gray and my original intention was to use some Kate Forman fabric but I discovered I didn't have enough.  So I bought some ticking and appliqued some vintage toile de jouey fabric onto it.  What do you think of the finished result?


  1. I do hope you had a really lovely day. Thank you for your sweet message too.
    Your screen makeover looks wonderful!

  2. it looks lovely!
    If the screen is as small as it looks in the pics, think it was originally a telephone screen- from the 1920s to put around your phone and shield such an unsightly feature!

  3. Thank you for your lovely comment.
    I'm much better now,just a cough now.
    What an adorable little dog! Beach walks are the best.
    Your screen makeover is fantastic!
    Enjoy the warmer weather. :0)

  4. Love the screen, what a wonderful color. As for you daughter's dog, he looks like Bob the dog in Hercules Poirot's Dumb Witness movie.

  5. Just love the screen! Looks great!

    That puppy is too cute. Soooo sweet:o)
